Don Stredney served as a senior research scientist for Biomedical Applications and as director of the Interface Lab at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC). At the time, Don was a member of the Experimental Therapeutics Program at the Comprehensive Cancer Center and an associate member of the Head and Neck Oncology Program at the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute in Columbus, Ohio.
Don's research involved the exploration of high performance computing and the application of advanced interface technology for the development of more intuitive methods for interaction with large and complex multimodal data sets. His research interests lie in theories of representation, specifically the representation and interaction with synthesized biomedical phenomena for clinical and biomedical research and education. Don is co-recipient of the Smithsonian Institute/Computerworld 1996 Information Technology Leadership Award sponsored by Cray Research Inc. for the design and implementation of a computer simulation environment for training residents in the delivery of regional anesthesia techniques.
Don had funded projects through NIDCD, NIOSH, NSF and DOE/ASCI. In addition, Don has been an investigator on projects from the National Institutes of Health/National Library of Medicine, the National Institute for Drug Addiction, Department of Defense, Medical Army Material Command, Department of Energy, Lockheed Martin, the National Institute for Disability and Rehabilitation Research, Harvard Medical School, Ameritech, the Committee on Institutional Cooperation of the Big Ten and University of Chicago, and Cray Research Inc.
